Sooma Receives Intention to Grant Patent from EPO for Its Innovative Electrode Placement System, Reinforcing Patent Portfolio

The EPO patent intention serves as a testament to Sooma’s dedication to advancing the efficacy and precision of tDCS therapy.

At Sooma Medical, we are delighted to announce that the European Patent Office (EPO) has declared its intention to grant a patent for our groundbreaking electrode placement system used by our medical-grade brain stimulation device for depression and chronic pain. This significant development is a recognition of our team’s diligent work and further solidifies Sooma’s position as a leader in the field of clinical non-invasive neuromodulation therapies for psychiatric and neurological disorders. 

The EPO’s intention to grant patent validates Sooma’s dedication to improving patient care by providing accessible brain stimulation therapies with a developmental focus on treatment efficacy and precision. This achievement adds to the company’s already extensive patent portfolio in the field of neurostimulation and empowers medical professionals to optimize treatment outcomes and improve patient care.

“Our patents are focused on ensuring the safety and effectiveness of our therapies,” says Tuomas Neuvonen, Sooma CEO and co-founder. “This recognition supports our ongoing efforts towards ensuring the precise reproducibility of the intended stimulation dose, regardless of whether the patient is being treated in-clinic or is self-administering treatment at home, therefore improving the safety and efficacy of the therapy.”

This validation, together with the recently obtained Breakthrough Device designation from the FDA in the United States, strengthens our position as the preferred choice of healthcare professionals around the globe for clinical-grade tDCS devices.
